How Often Should Baby Changing Stations Be Replaced?
There are several baby changing station models that commercial facilities utilize to accommodate customers with small children or infants. To ensure a hygienic and sanitary environment for guests, it is essential to make amenity upgrades toward the end of your product’s life cycle.
How often should baby changing stations be replaced? In this article, we will examine the multiple kinds of baby changing stations and how their designs could affect your replacement schedule with standard maintenance.
A primary component of how often should baby changing stations be replaced pertains to materials used in construction. Changing stations made from injection-molded polypropylene offers superior chemical and fatigue resistance, but these models can also experience plastic deformation. Should your baby changing stations become susceptible to oxidation or damage from chlorinated solvents, it is time to replace them. Same thing goes for if the plastic or metal of the table becomes unusable from either a puncture, or a piece of metal sticking out as a potential hazard, the whole table will need to be replaced. Now, if there is just a part that is needing replacement, like a strap or a cylinder, these pieces can be ordered so you do not have to replace the whole table.
Koala and Bobrick models are treated with Microban® technology to protect customers from bacteria, yeasts, molds, and fungi. This antimicrobial protection is engineered to last for the useful lifetime of the product. In addition, most baby changing stations are FDA approved.
Replacing your baby changing stations may also depend on the state of their hardware. Most hinge systems and accessories are made from stainless steel, which is resistant to corrosion. Should your wall-mounted, recessed, or countertop models show any signs of deficiency in strength or efficacy, it is important to replace them as quickly as possible. It is important to note, when replacing these models, ensure that you replace with a similar model, to ensure that it will fit properly, especially in the case of recessed models. For example, the KB200 changed their hole positions, which could cause potential issues if you are purchasing it, and the holes for your old one are spaced differently.
